What about Smorty?

I’m not sure whether it’s me or …?

Well, I’ve tried to work it out with Affiliate Junktion, but those guys just keep on sending me the same emails this week. I just hope that I didn’t lose my money! Because I already payed them. I’m not sure I like this situation. The guys behind the affiliate junktion review and moneyfrom-net.com posted some good words about them (on my last post regarding the AJ), so I’ll not rush into conclusion. But than again: I am not sure if these guys are not the Affiliate Junktion guys just making some promo for themselves.

I don’t know what to think about all that “affiliate” and “make money online” things I’m doing now. Sometimes I just hate the Internet!

Next “fishy” thing is smorty.com.

Smorty.com wants you to write an article of between 150 and 400 words. Not so easy when a broad theme comes in (like mine about the shopping cart software, whos service I really liked). Then, you have to publish that article on your blog – and guess what – wait for 5 days for them to review and eventually approve it. Hm, interesting. 5 days. On my graphics-illustrations blog it means that more than 3000 people already saw that post. Google took that post into account when weighing the value of their site, and guess what: no matter if your article good or bad, stupid or clever, after five days of sitting on your blog it can be refused without any explanation. Click. Done. Like that. Gone by the wind.

Not sure it was worthwhile. Not at all. Let’s see what happens next.

(My) Cafepress story

When I found this cafepress thing I was happy and I thought that is something for me!

Well, I think now the same but… there’s always a but :)

First, I bought one t-shirt with a Canon logo (It was available despite of the policy that copyrighted materials can not be used)! Then I tried to do the same thing with my “Collecting donations for the Nikon D3″ but they banned me just a second later (for the same policy), I wasn’t allowed even to replicate the D3. Interesting, huh?

So, I created a few items but of course: nobody knows about my wannabe shop! Try some marketing, they said. Oh, yes! (slap on the forehead) How come I didn’t come up with that?! (LOL)

Anyway: they are great but I don’t have the time/idea and enough money to market my shop. It’s hard because I’m designing my stuff and I feel like I have to employ the experienced marketer to do the marketing part for me.

Overall score: yes, use it. Connect the shop with your blog and send your visitors there. See if you can sell something. I made 4 bucks in 4 months.
